Abstract

In order to reduce the cost of deep-drawn parts and increase their competitiveness in comparison with plastics, a numerical simulation model for deep-drawing has been developed. This model is based on a large strain membrane formulation, taking into account small flexural strains, anisotropy and contact/friction between tools and part. Numerical results were compared with various complex laboratory tests, allowing the progressive validation of all the program sections. For this purpose, two steels were used, ES and E335D, with very different lubrication conditions, allowing some variations in strain paths. The results obtained are very satisfactory.
